Randall wishes you to reaffirm your desire to join the Leatherworkers' Guild.

— In-game description




  • Speak with Guildmaster Geva.


  • Randall wishes you to reaffirm your desire to join the Leatherworkers' Guild.
  • You must receive Guildmaster Geva's permission if you wish to join the Leatherworkers' Guild. Seek her out in the workshop and impress upon her your desire to learn.
  • Though you have been accepted into the Leatherworkers' Guild, you have much to prove if you are to meet their high standard of craftsmanship. To embark upon your journey as a leatherworker, equip the knife Geva gave you and speak to her again.


Randall: Have you decided to join the Leatherworkers' Guild?
Randall: Very well. I invite you to speak with Guildmaster Geva.
Randall: She is a brilliant artisan, personally responsible for the creation of countless Fen-Yll products. You have doubtless heard her name before.
Randall: The guildmaster's patterns are uniformly elegant, and with them even novice craftsmen can cut their materials with minimal waste.
Randall: It is for her to decide if you are fit to join us.
Randall: She can be found in the work area within. Present yourself to her and do not waver in your determination.

Speaking to Geva

Geva: So you wish to become a leatherworker?
Geva: If you've spoken with Randall, then you've been told what it means to work with leather—the weight you must carry, the responsibility you must bear.
Geva: Not just to the elementals, mind you, but also to the guild. Our craftsmanship is unrivaled, and each member is expected to live up to that reputation.
Geva: Once you join, there is no turning back. If you dishonor us, I shall flay you myself and make a chocobo saddle from your hide.
Geva: Will you swear to uphold our traditions and be the best leatherworker you can be?
  • Yes
Geva: Very well, you may learn our craft within these walls...
Geva: ...though you seem ill equipped to do even that.
Geva: I will give you a head knife to help you on your way, but the rest is up to you.
Geva: Do not presume that your association with us means your work will bear the Fen-Yll name. Until you prove yourself worthy, you will not be permitted to so much as touch a Fen-Yll product, much less craft one.
Geva: Now then, if we're to continue with your initiation, you'll need to put that knife in your hand first. Talk to me when you're ready to begin.
  • No
Geva: A shame. You might have made a halfway decent leatherworker—or a serviceable saddle at worst.
